Modern southern wedding celebrates Atlanta skyline
We are both originally from the South, and we wanted to create a “New South ambiance” with a modern metropolitan atmosphere. We were also able to incorporate our chihuahua, Queso, with cut-out pics of him in a bowtie guiding our guests to sign the guest book and retrieve their table assignments.
We entered the ceremony from opposite doors and walked down the aisle together.
Guests were able to find their table assignments thanks to table signs featuring our favorite Southern cities. Brunch is one of our favorite things to do on the weekends, so our wedding was held at 11 a.m. with a brunch reception filled with a mimosa bar, Bloody Marys, margaritas for Cinco de Mayo and Mint Juleps for Derby Day. The reception concluded with a couples dance as well as hits from the 2000s.

“The grooms chose the theme of Modern Southern Cocktail: Bowties and Pearls,” shared Carrie Whitney for WM Events. “They wore navy and yellow, and the venue was in the heart of Midtown Atlanta Peachtree Club on the 28th Floor with a perfect outdoor view of the Atlanta skyline.”
